Disqualified drink-driver nabbed after he refused to stop for gardai in Kilkenny city
A disqualified motorist was caught red handed after he was arrested on suspicion of drink driving in Kilkenny city.
The driver initially failed to stop when he encountered local gardai on patrol on the outskirts of the city on Sunday.
Officers carried out a roadside test when he eventually pulled over. Further checks confirmed he was legally barred from driving.
The suspect was arrested and charged. He is due to appear before Kilkenny District Court.
Gardai have again urged motorists to “never drive under the influence of an intoxicant”.
